“Big Attraction” is the second release by Melbourne-based punk group Amyl and the Sniffers. It includes singles the band released last year as well as new tracks such as “I’m Not a Loser” and “Westgate”.
Overall the lyrics, which are writen and performed by Amy Taylor, are full of self-confidence and badassness. This album pumps me up and makes me feel on top of the world when I’m walking around town with my headphones on.

"Eat Their Own" is LA four-piece The Paranoyds biggest release yet. The five tracks on it are mostly heavy rock but the lyrics are lighthearted, fun, and sometimes creepy. The mood and melody fluctuates throughout each song, but the vocals smooth all the transitions together. One moment will feel like you are surfing a wave and the next you are being haunted by a ghost.

Long time LA artist Gina Negrini expands her solo project from 4-track demos to a four-piece band on Mo Dotti’s first release, Dollar Astrology.
Joined by Guy Valdez, Brian Rodriguez, and Shelly Schimek, Mo Dotti creates soothing and easy to listen to surf rock. The album was recorded at home by the band and released on Practical Records. Dollar Astrology references 99 cent astrology scrolls that were once sold at grocery store checkouts.
